Gray House Shutters

There is a lovely house here in Greenwich on Carleton Street that I pass by about six times per day when I am running my kids back and forth to camp.  It’s a white house and the owners have recently put up gray shutters and are doing additional renovations, and the project caught my eye.  I started thinking about how elegant gray can be so I just pulled a few photos of homes with gray shutters for inspiration here on the blog.  Here are a few I thought you would enjoy:


The shutters, lighting fixture and statue work in this photo!  It’s charming!  If you are considering gray for your house, here are some fun articles. In this House Beautiful article, 26 Designers Share Their Favorite Grays.  Benjamin Moore shares their top five shades of gray on their website.  Here’s another great resource – Stacy Naquin, an interior designer, rounds up some favorite grays and includes photos. Take a look!  Let us know if you’ve used gray and what color it was in your comments below!

    We are doing grey shutters (they are “country club green” right now – remember when everybody’s shutters were that color? Yeah, ours still are.), but hadn’t found the right color yet, so thank you for the Benjamin Moore paint color suggestions!

    That grey custom shutters are really making the home so inviting and comfortable to live in. Aside from beautifying your homes, it also serves as protection when it storms. I love it. The color matches your home.

    If we choose the shutters wisely, according to the color of the building, it will give an amazing appearance to the building. Whether its house or commercial place, having shutters has many benefits.

    I used Royal paint from Ace Hardware in the gray color of “Still Life.” My house is tan siding and red brick and it looks very nice. I used a Clark Kensington “Sky Blue” for my front door to make it pop.
